An art journal page created for the theme “Inspired By” at Art Journal Journey
This page is inspired by the painted flower die cuts that I see on Pinterest.
To begin I sprayed my page with Distress Oxide Spray, Hickory Smoke. I cut the circles die twice and glued them to the page. I then splattered white acrylic paint onto it.
It was too...something, so I rubbed Distress Ink, Walnut Stain over the page and on the edges.
I stamped and painted the bottles with watercolors. Then cut the bottles out.
The flowers are die cut. I cut again the stems to trim leaves and make them long enough to sit inside the bottles.
I added Washi Tape to ground the bottles. Glued the bottles and flowers to the page. With a graphite pencil I added some shading for depth.
The top left of the page was a previously cut die that I added for more interest.
I need lots of practice in this art journaling business but I’m having a lot of fun learning all kinds of stuff. That I love doing these pages is as much a surprise to me as anyone! It took my friend a long time to get me to even try this. Now I’m hooked!
This gives me the opportunity to use a lot of the supplies that I have. Cardmaking alone is just not enough. The journal gives me the freedom to create that I don’t have making cards.
